Playing careerEdit

JuniorEdit

Lamb scored 140 goals over three years in the WHL. He was drafted 72nd overall in 1982 by the Calgary Flames.

ProfessionalEdit

He and spent two years with their AHL affiliate in Moncton. Since Calgary was deep at centre, Lamb opted to sign as a free agent with the Detroit Red Wings. He split the 1986–87 season between the minors and the NHL but was effective when the Wings reached the semi-finals.

Prior to the 1987–88 season, the hard-working pivot was claimed on waivers by the Edmonton Oilers. During his first two years in the organization, he played mostly in the AHL before playing an important two way role when the club retooled itself in 1989–90. He was one of the Oilers best players in the post-season with 17 points in 22 games as the club won its fifth Stanley Cup in seven seasons. Lamb spent two more years in Edmonton as the team declined in the regular season but over achieved in the playoffs by reaching the semi-finals two years in a row.

The tenacious competitor played briefly with the Ottawa Senators, Philadelphia Flyers, and Montreal Canadiens before closing out his NHL tenure. He spent 2 years in the IHL with the Houston Aeros, and then went on to spend a year with the EV Landshut club in Germany in 1998. Then he returned to Houston, Texas to play with the Aeros again in the 1998–99 and 1999–2000 seasons. He won the Turner Cup with the Aeros as a player/assistant coach in the 1998–1999 season.
